A man who has had a two-day erection must have Amputated the tip of his penis after & # 39; talking doctors failed to remove a catheter from his urethra & # 39; and the GANGRENE developed
- The 52-year-old went to the hospital in northern India with the intimate issue
- Doctors think that the treatment to get rid of his erection has caused the gangrene
- He lost the tip of his penis only four days after the first sign of a problem
A man whose erection lasted two days developed gangrene and needed the tip of his penis amputated.
The extraordinary case of the 52-year-old nameless person from India has been published in a medical journal.
Doctors revealed that the man went first to the hospital because he could not get rid of a & # 39; painful and long-lasting & # 39; erection.
When doctors emptied the blood, they left a catheter behind and he quickly developed a black gangrene on the head of his penis.
The unnamed patient, 52, first went to a medical center in northern India because he had a painful erection that would not disappear. But within four days he had amputated the end of his penis, his doctors revealed in BMJ Case Reports (stock image)
By the time he returned to the hospital there were so many dead tissue surgeons who had no choice but to amputate.
The man was treated at King George's Medical University in Lucknow – about 310 miles (500 km) southeast of New Delhi.
He first sought help for priapism, the medical term for a persistent and painful erection of the penis, according to an article in BMJ Case Reports.
He had suffered the painful condition 48 hours before he first went to a medical center.
It is not certain what caused his priapism. It is considered a medical emergency if an erection lasts longer than two hours.
However, the NHS states that it can be caused by sickle cell disease, illegal and legal drugs, or by taking Viagra or similar erectile drugs.
Surgeons put a device called a shunt that diverts blood flow along with a urinary catheter into his penis and wrapped it in a compressive relationship.
But only the day after his surgery did the glans (head) of his penis – which went limp – turn black.
& # 39; We have removed his urethral catheter, & # 39; wrote Dr. Saqib Mehdi, who treated the patient, in the case report.
& # 39; Yet the black color of the glans became deeper the next day and a clear dividing line became visible between the penis and the penis. & # 39;
Doctors could not stop the gangrene, which is the irreversible death of skin and flesh, so decided the best option to amputate the head of the penis.
Three weeks after the life-changing operation, the man was able to urinate normally and had a & # 39; healthy wound & # 39 ;, the report said.
Dr. Mehdi and his colleagues suggested that the catheter and tight bandage after the man's priapism procedure might have caused gangrene.
MAN IS EXPIRED HIS PENIS AFTER GETTING BALL BEARINGS PLACED ON IT
A man who got two ball bearings on his penis after he put them there for sexual pleasure almost lost his member when it started to rot.
The unnamed 33-year-old had left the rings on the shaft of his penis for two weeks before visiting the hospital with pain and swelling.
After the normal treatment had failed, doctors resorted to using an industrial masonry saw to cut off the metal rings in what they considered a & desperate measure & # 39; mentioned, they revealed BMJ Case Reports.
The doctors at the UCMS & GTB hospital in New Delhi, India, described the penis of the unfortunate man as & # 39; swollen & # 39; and & # 39; soft & # 39 ;, and it looked red raw on photos & # 39; s.
Doctors said they needed a desperate measure to resolve a desperate situation: they used a circular saw designed for cutting marble to chop the steel hoops of the man's penis
Thanks to their extreme efforts, the penis was saved from getting gangrene and losing weight, and he could get erections again within two weeks.
Doctors tried to give the man injections to shrink his penis, using a pressure cuff to pinch him together and with a small wire saw to cut the metal, but they all failed.
In the diary they wrote: & # 39; To ensure the salvage of the penis in desperate situations (it may be necessary) to use desperate measures that are unconventional and hard to avoid. & # 39;
